A very disappointing list for the last games to be added to say the least, I'm happy with Star Ocean though.
If it works, it isn't stupid.

Bit bummed that Alpha Protocal never made it to BC. Glad that Too Human and Star Ocean did though. I might actually finish SO now that I don't have to keep switching discs for crafting and mat grinding.

Very disappointed that Freedom Fighters did not make it to backwards compatibility.

Which is why it's a good thing to hold onto your old hardware.
So, Xbox is going full 3rd party Publisher now? Where does that leave us Hardcore Xbox console fans?

Wonder what that means for Games with Gold going forward then. Surely they will still have those BC when they are available.

Unless I’m mistaken and those games are not always guaranteed to be BC.

This seems like a weird time to announce the end of the program, but I assume they're hoping the bad news will be lost in the sea of announcements. Too Human was delisted, so it's weird they're relisting it to make it free too. It sucks that no more games are coming, but it takes the guesswork out of which titles I need to make room for on my 360 hard drives.

Shame that Avatar: The Burning Earth never made it. Pour one out.
I can read your mind... I know you have Xbox Live.

I just got Too Human, so that's nice that it's BC now. Though the rest of the list isn't that interesting to me.

Sad to see it end but hopfully they will make Project Scarlett complete backwards compatible as well. Still a nice list of games to end it off at least and Too Human being free is sweet very underated game.

The backward compatibility program was one of my favorite aspects of Xbox. Sad that it's ending. RIP for all the games on our wishlists that will never turn BC.

(I believe they can't legally sell Too Human after that lawsuit between Silicon Knights and Epic Games. So, free it is. laugh)

Not every BC game has come to GwG. And we don't know what exactly the plan is for Scarlett -- it might be that they are cancelling the Xbox One program because they're hard at work making all of those games and more playable on Scarlett.

At this point it's all up in the air. With Game Pass Ultimate it's plausible that they might can GwG altogether next gen.

What was so disastrous about Too Human? Compared to a lot of the trash they are releasing on the XB1 now it's a very good game. I hope they have a sequel in the works.

This is making me nervous that the xbox 360 servers might be shutdown in the near future. :[

Infinite Undiscovery was one my last wishes for BC so that makes me less upset.
